03 - Ribeira de Piscos

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Muxagata

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Late Prehistory - Iron Age - Modern

Ribeira de Piscos is located immediately upstream to Fariseu rock art site and on the Côa's left bank. The 42 identified panels are distributed along the last 2000 meters of this long creek ('Ribeira'=Creek). Most are located around its mouth but also along the shores of the Côa. Engraved figures date mostly from the last period of the Upper Paleolithic. This site possesses some of the most beautiful figures in the whole valley. It’s also the site where more human representations have been found (17), an ithyphallic motif in rock 2 and the remaining 16 in rock 24.
